Subject[PATCH 07/11] jump label: sort jump table at build-time
The jump label table is more optimal accessed if the entries are continguous.
Sorting the table accomplishes this. Do the sort at build-time. Adds a '-j'
option to 'modpost' which replaces the vmlinux, with a sorted jump label
section vmlinux. I've tested this on x86 with relocatable and it works fine
there as well. Note that I have not sorted the jump label table in modules.
This is b/c the jump label names can be exported by the core kernel, and thus
I don't have them available at buildtime. This could be solved by either
finding the correct ones in the vmlinux, or by embedding the name of the jump
label in the module tables (and not just a pointer), but the module tables
tend to be smaller, and thus their is less value to this kind of change
anyway. The kernel continues to do the sort, just in case, but at least for
the vmlinux, this is just a verfication that the jump label table has
already been sorted.
